Storylines

  • Oklahoma is 77-27-6 (.727) all-time vs. Kansas and has won 15 straight in the series. It is OU’s longest active winning streak against an opponent. 
  • The 42-day span between OU’s last home game (Sept. 26 vs. Kansas State) and Saturday’s contest versus Kansas is tied for the longest between Sooners’ home outings within a season in school history.
  • Oklahoma has won 21 straight November games (last loss on Nov. 8, 2014, vs. Baylor) and 24 of its last 25. 
  • The Sooners have scored at least 34 points in each of their last 11 games against Kansas.
  • OU has scored at least 28 points in a school-record 58 consecutive games.
  • This year’s Oklahoma squad is looking to become the fifth in program history to win a conference title with two league losses. The four occasions it happened were in 1976 (5-2 in Big Eight; shared with Colorado and Oklahoma State) and 2002, 2007 and 2010 (6-2 in Big 12; won Big 12 Championship games). No OU team has ever won a conference title after a 0-2 league start and no Sooners squad has ever won a conference championship with three league losses.
  • Each of the last 15 meetings in the Oklahoma-Kansas series have been OU victories by at least 15 points. 
  • Oklahoma has won the time-of-possession battle in all six games this season and ranks third in the country (among teams that have played more than twice) with its 34:46 average.
